I greatly appreciate your concerns, Omack. I know how important it is to be able to stay in contact with friends and family abroad. May I ask if you've ever been able to text them? Any other members of your account have a similar issue?

Are you using the format: 011 46 70 number?

70 could be 71 72 73 or 76?

Did you try replying to the incoming text?

Issues MMS texting Sweden Re: Texting Sweden

Was there ever a -real- solution for this?

I am having same issue sending an MMS to friend in Sweden (Telenor/mobile).  This was never an issue when I was using Sprint/T-Mobile, but after getting new device and service with VZ my MMS toward 001 46 70 9nnnnnn ... are now blocked. 

My friend can SMS -and- MMS me just fine from there number, and I can call and SMS them with no issue.  I can also do MMS with no issue with US numbers.  But only MMS attempts with Sweden say "invalid destination address".

Thanks
